In this short workshop, participants will gain an understanding of how to establish and maintain a tonal audiation foundation in their secondary choral and instrumental ensembles. Using a series of familiar patterns, teachers will learn how to engage students in pattern instruction at all levels of the skill learning sequence to foster, develop and nurture tonal audiation skills. Teachers will acquire practical techniques for connecting tonal audiation skills to their voices and instruments.  

Feel like your ukulele class needs a little fine tuning? Are you unsure about what life after C, G, and F chords looks like? Here are some suggestions for structuring your class in a way that will engage your students’ ears through melodies, bass lines, and improvisation.

18 of us gathered via Zoom for our virtual happy hour!  We shared experiences about teaching online and discussed current events.  We were so happy to welcome friends from various locations in the MA-GIML region as well as Portugal and Brazil.  We had such a great time and decided that we should do it again!

One outcome of the discussion was creating a repository of online teaching resources.  So.......

Do you have successful online teaching resources that you have been using? Would you like to share them?  Are you looking for more online teaching ideas?

Please be sure to include your name, contact info and type of activity (Early Childhood, General, Choral, Instrumental, etc.)

Come and go as you like/need.  You supply your snacks and beverage, and together we'll supply some much needed social time!
